Description
Swedish EMU for the GDG express service at the private Bergslagernas Järnvägar (BJ). Trafikförvaltningen Göteborg-Dalarne-Gävle (GDG) was an association for operation of rail and bus traffic between the private railway lines Bergslagernas Järnvägar (BJ), Gävle-Dala Järnväg (GDJ) and Södra Dalarnes Järnväg (SDJ). Two units were constructed by ASEA and delivered in 1947. The units were put into service between Gothenburg and Gävle the same year. The top speed was 115 km/h, wich made these trains the fastest in Sweden at the time. In 1948, the GDG traffic association was incorporated into the Swedish State Railways (SJ). Inspired by the train, SJ ordered 6 similar units for use in express services on the main lines. This model shows the original color scheme used by GDG in 1947. #ASEA #Bergslagernas_järnväg #BJ #Dalarna #Electric #EMU #GDG #GDGExpressen #Gävle #Göteborg #SJ #Statens_järnvägar #Sweden #Swedish_State_Railways #Train #Triebwagen #X8 #Xoa #Xoa8
